And so my letter box breathes a sign of relief that election day is over. The Lib Dem candidate for the local MP has during the last few months laid seige to my letter box with leaflets, letters and newspapers promoting her campaign appearing almost daily. Maybe she missed the whole point of “canvassing” and how it can after a while become “harrassment”.
So election day came, I was in a polling station all day and so didn’t look at the rubbish in the letter box until today. What did I miss? A leaflet from Ms Crotty exclaiming that “It’s time to do something different”. Indeed, she offered to arrange for someone to even drive the voters to the polling station and back.
True irony is when you compare her phrase “It’s time to do something different” with the text at the bottom right of the page. I’ll leave it to people to work out what actually happened on polling day in Warrington South!
